    Summary

    Once David's retrieved the two suitcases that carry his only remaining belongings, the driver shifts into reverse and backs away, leaving David alone with the house that has literally haunted his dreams since he was a kid.

    He’d expected it to be less imposing now. That’s what Dr. Lee had told him, during one of their last sessions at the center. Everything looks big when you’re small, right? A bunch of bricks can’t possibly be as scary as he described. Standing here now, though, David can confidently say that Hill House is just as intimidating now as it was back then — maybe even more so, now that he knows what waits for him inside. It towers over him, blocking the light from the sun and covering him in shadow. If that isn’t a metaphor for something, he doesn’t know what is.

    As he stands, frozen, the porch light begins to flicker slowly — on, off, on, off. It’s with a sharp ache in his chest that David remembers Adelina’s rule. He can hear her voice in his head saying, “Porchlight means it’s time to come home.”

    Well, he’s home.

    OR: A ghost story loosely inspired by The Haunting of Hill House.

    Summary

    Patrick doesn’t drink coffee. He prefers tea nine days out of ten, but every once in a while he’ll say something to David like, “Ugh, I just can’t wake up today,” or “I’m going to make coffee tomorrow, early day!” and then the next thing David knows, he’s married to a whole different person.

    Or 5 times Patrick has coffee, +1 time he doesn't.

    Summary

    Patrick is ready to take things to the next level with David, but their respective living situations don't really give them much privacy. Clearly the answer is to close the shop (on their statistically quietest days, of course) and take a little romantic getaway.

    Summary

    The hand on his shoulder softens and trails down, fingers curling over his bicep, a little too soft, too warm, too nice.

    Patrick lifts his head and in the sliver of light peaking through the drawn curtains all he can see is a shock of messy black hair poking up under the comforter on the pillow beside him. He pulls his arm away from the touch and turns to sit up, taking in his surroundings. He’s in a studio apartment he doesn’t recognise, all shadows and unfamiliar shapes in the soft light. He hadn’t recognised the guy’s voice when he’d told him to get up. That fact somehow makes his heart race uncomfortably in his chest. Had he told Rachel he’d changed his mind? Had one of her friends let him crash here to avoid the imminent fallout? Or had he freaked out, taken solace with this stranger and gone home with him on the rebound?

    Him.

    Fuck.

    OR

    Patrick wakes up in bed beside his fiancé. The only problem with that is, it isn’t the same fiancée he had when he went to sleep.

    An amnesia fic, wherein Patrick can’t remember the two years of his life in which he really started living.

    Summary

    He stands up and takes David’s hand, and pulls him from his chair once other couples start joining the floor. David’s eyes twinkle under the string lights overhead. He tilts his head back with a shining smile, feigning his reluctance, and lets himself be pulled, then winds his arms around Patrick’s shoulders. They’ve danced like this so many times, but now… in this particular setting, with his heart so full… it’s something else.

    // David plans a 50th Anniversary celebration for Marci and Clint at one of Stevie's new motels. Love is all around.

    Summary

    After he's diagnosed with a terminal illness, Patrick blows up his entire life and goes on his dream vacation.

     
    Story is based on the movie Last Holiday. As usual, I’ve only retained the broadest strokes of the movie plot & taken many liberties. You don't need to be familiar with the movie to read this, but I love and recommend it. Queen Latifah is amazing. This was meant to be written with alternating POV by chapters, but David, and especially Patrick, had other ideas and I let them do what they wanted. I think the POV changes are clear, though.

    ***If you need/want assurances about this story before choosing to read it, please click here, but be aware SPOILERS lurk there.***

    Summary

     “How’s the family? Everybody okay?” Brewer News was usually a pretty mundane, albeit complicated affair, as there were a lot of them.There were skiing, camping and fishing stories, birthday parties and anniversaries, tales of home improvement and gardening. The craziest thing that happened so far was Patrick’s cousin Trish getting into a mountain bike accident and breaking her collar bone.

    No one ever seemed to get stuck in Istanbul, had a gambling debt to settle in Monaco, or needed a fake passport out of Belarus. Which in all honestly, things David didn’t miss.

    “Everything’s fine, just fine.” Patrick smiled. “Mom and Dad are thinking about getting a new car, Maybe a Prius.”

    “Ooh-nice. Good for them.” David had no doubt that the car was blue. He also tried very hard not to sound suspicious, as this was obliviously not whatever Patrick was practically vibrating over.

    Not even a year into their marriage, and David finds himself invaded by Brewers: Patrick's favorite cousin and his family. David tries to deal, and it's not easy when this Brewer invasion includes his worst nightmare-kids. David tries his best for Patrick's sake, and is surprised that he has much in common with a small Brewer.

    Summary

    Patrick hated being home alone. He hated when David was out of the house, especially overnight. It usually didn’t happen for more than a day or two at most, but now that David was in New York, visiting Alexis for a long weekend, he was home alone for four nights. 

    He held it together just fine initially, but by Sunday evening, he was feeling especially sorry for himself. On his way back to the cottage after closing up, he decided to stop at the liquor store to pick up a bottle of cheap whiskey, forgoing beer for something a bit stronger.

    Summary

    What the hell had gotten into David?

    It came as no surprise to Patrick (or anyone in Schitt's Creek) that David couldn't keep his hands off of his husband, but why did it seem so much more today?

    Summary

    “So.”

    “So,” David echoes, not looking up from the paper, thoroughly engrossed in an article titled What Kenzo Left Behind. Patrick knows enough now to recognize “Kenzo” as the name of a fashion designer; five years practice removing designer clothing is finally rubbing off on him.

    “So I ordered 40,000 bees yesterday.”

    David’s entire upper body straightens at once, mouth set in a firm line echoing the sudden stiffness of his spine, brow impossibly flat. Admittedly, Patrick broke the news in this manner precisely to experience this full and honest reaction.

    “What.”

    “Honeybees. I ordered two packages.”

    David blinks.

    “What.”

    Summary

    After establishing a reputation for being "difficult to work with," world-class Olympic figure skater, David Rose, is in desperate need of a partner. His coach, Stevie Budd, sets out to find someone — anyone — who is removed enough from the gossip to work with him. Enter Patrick Brewer: a former NHL player recently forced into retirement by an injury. He leaps at the opportunity to compete on the ice again, but tempers rise when the transition isn't as easy as Patrick hoped. Reluctantly, the two talented athletes team up for a shot at winning that elusive gold medal... but will their explosive dynamic be a disaster on ice?

    My take on a 'The Cutting Edge' AU for a prompt during Passions & Pastimes.

    Summary

    David had expected lots of things to come from Schitt’s Creek, but being one of three prominent queer establishments was never one of them. He actually assumed he would be hate crimed within his first few weeks here. Instead he found the most welcoming community known to man.

    Summary

    “Would you want to come over after work?”

    “I could do that, yeah.” David slid his hand down Patrick’s shoulder and over his bicep, he raised his eyebrow knowingly. “Is Ray out at poker night again?”

    “Actually, no.” Patrick looked at the floor and back up at David. “He’s gonna be there, but I uh, was thinking we could just, I don’t know, be together tonight.”

    Summary

    Listening to Elisa brought home to David how much he’s missed the passion that people can have for art and the emotions it can evoke for both the creator and the observers. His gallery was born out of love for that aspect of art – the revelation that his success was funded by his parents didn’t change that fact, even as it cast a dark shadow of self-doubt over his own abilities.

    That same love is part of what drives him forward with the store – the chance to see people’s passion and the artistry and imagination involved in creating their products.

    Between the gallery and the store, he’s an expert, by now, at displaying other people’s art. Creating his own, not so much.

    ***

    Inspired by one of the store's vendors and wanting to stretch himself creatively, David takes up wood burning. Learning something new is never easy - fortunately his friends and family are there for support.
